state. >> a lot of places have drug-free work environments. now doesn't that come into question at least for today in washington state? is it the same as having a beer at lunch and coming to work? smoke a joint and come to work in what was a drug-free environment? >> it's a wonderful question. the effects will be different depending on one's tolerance. ultimately an employer has as right to expect when they employ people to come to work they are able and fit to do the job for which they were hired. certainly if there is as it relates to alcohol you're not sober and as it relates to marijuana you are a bit hazy of the mind, the employer would legally be well within their rights to take the appropriate action which means if you smoke too much, you're fired. >> guess that's a good answer to a clever conundrum they find themselves in. thank you so much. appreciate it. >>> coming up in ten minutes as well, the los angeles mayor is going to join me. he's going to talk about a federal crackdown on medical marijuana in california and now how all of this might square and he's also going to weigh
look at jobs report tomorrow, is dismal. we're liking inflationary environment down the road. this is bad news. >> you could could make the argument invite blowing past short term helpful, long term payne full. melissa: spending cuts, tax hikes are very dramatic going over the cliff. when you look at numbers, still is like five to one raising taxes to cutting spending. >> that's right. melissa: no one is really talking about cutting spending. isn't that the first thing you would do? if your fiscal house was in such disarray, household at home, first thing you do is stop spending. no one is doing that. >> what scares me, is that point. whether you agree or disagree hiking taxes i am not a fan of it but i think it will come. we can get past this. charlie gasparino and i have argued this. one of the consequences of the election the president will probably get his way raising most rates. melissa: right. >> i'm not saying i'm a fan. let's get past that, let's make it happen. republicans realize you lost election you didn't suddenly lose your backbone. this should be precursor gett
've had those things happen, do they have a productive environment to solve problems? not necessarily. they're still overcoming the divisiveness, the hard feelings from all of that." at the time reporters wanted to know whether rick snyder would support what is known as a right to work law. the idea of right to work is simple. under a right to work law, employees of a union shop don't have to pay union dues. the employees get the benefit of the union, the higher wages and better health care, all of that, but they do not have to pay for it. why pay money if you can have something for free? for unions, the results of this are close to catastrophic which is why republicans and big business love right to work laws. they are a way of destroying unions. the same heritage foundation that will be jim demint's new home says union membership fell by 15% in states that passed right to work. union organizing fell by half, passing a right to work law stops unions and it stops organizing. on the labor left, the economic policy institute reports that wages fall by more than 3% after you institute ri
environment for anybody that is doing this, you know, there is a consideration that one must have for what it would be like to change environments like this to be out there in space and be on the moon. you wouldn't want to have somebody freak out, ed, on a trip like this. it wouldn't work out very well. >> no. you would definitely have to have your act together between your ears to do something like this. >> yes. >> there is no question about it. and that's after spending all the money. is this safe? do you anticipate this would be a safe procedure? >> yes, i do anticipate that it would be a safe procedure. after all, any of these new ventures that are coming up are required by law to be able to meet the same sort of stringent safety regulations that nasa has to meet for any of its missions. and the difference here is that nasa has spent a lot of time and money and effort to be able to iron out all of those difficulties. and the new entities that are coming on are taking advantage of the work that is being done. >> ultimate goal here. what is it? >> the ultimate goal is to get us back in s
is an extension of the rather slow-growth environment had a we've seen that will help propel equity prices higher but not dramatically over the next year or two. >> bob pisani likened the fiscal cliff to y2k, and it is to a certain degree, at least in terms of decision and hiring and that kind of thing, it's creating some kind of paralysis. you talked to the traders here on the floor of the stock exchange. is it creating paralysis for them as well? they are not making any big bets until they know what happened. >> y2k created a lot of talk but didn't have impact on the stock market. i was here for that. the fiscal cliff has more impact, and it did today. i watched what the markets are doing today. today when bernanke was on, i saw interest rates move up, bond yields move up, highs for the day, and i saw stocks move down. that's kind of the opposite of what bernanke was wanting to have happen. >> right. >> and two things, guys, that did that. number one, he was questioned persistently about the fiscal cliff and had to come out and say what he said before we don't have the tools to deal with it if
making the environment cleaner and better from a government's he perspective. how do you attract businesses and money and private investment into climate change and protecting the environment? >> well, i think they need certainty. what i hear from businesses is -- i've been doing this almost 23 years. we need certainty. we want to invest or money, but we want to know the rules aren't going to change. if carbon pollution is a bad thing, which we know we need to control it, that i'm not going to be disadvantaged because i'm clean. in fact, it would be great if i'm advantaged, but don't put me on a playing field that makes it harder for me to compete. i think what we have to do, we find businesses all over the country cutting their energy use, cutting their water use, increasing their profits by doing it. we have to lift them up, because they can show the way for other businesses that might be too small or too busy to realize the opportunities are there. >> what's your plan for the second term? are you sticking around? >> you know what? what i can say is i'm very committed to these
are in a very good environment. and in north america, obviously, is important. europe is obviously important. but you're focusing on emerging markets. >> yes. >> even putting manufacturing, which i'm not sure, why would you build -- you're building a $100 million plant in africa. why not just export to avenue from from other places? why build a plant in africa? >> we have going to affect the organization from here. this was a unique opportunity because it was a state-owned factory. we managed to take over and they needed technology. and why produce there is a huge market. there are 1 billion people right now, the population will double. >> on the continent? >> yeah. on the continent of africa. they have a problem with feud security now. they have 60% of the global reserves of tillable land, which is great news, and only 20% of this land are used today, are farms today. therefore, it is a very interesting market. i'm very proud that we discovered it first and that we will be there also the first to manufacture from the western global players. >> so private corporation. who needs to go into th
's a big difference, the question is how does a company like mine compete in a global environment where china, india and europe are on our shore. >> they're having government subsidies to chinese products so they can put guys like you out of business and that's what a lot of americans don't understand. it's frustrating to me, that's correct. but there's probably a lore important point about the product and that is that our government is making it difficult for us compete. and the tax policy, president obama is telling small business people like myself, he's going to help out by raising taxes. . the only way is to invest in equipment and fuel costs the same, electricity costs the same. the only way i can have more is to have better equipment. the only way to invest is to be profitable and removes small profits and unable to-- wage gross decreases. >> a lot of businesses seem to do okay. ge didn't pay any taxes, so biggest organizations are finding ways to be circumvent the complexities of tax keyed. as a small business operator, do you get to do those things? >> when president obama came

what was right for the environment or pub lip education. i'm a public school kid. my dad was on the school board. i have three sisters, two of them public schoolteachers here in florida. i have a heart for that kind of thing. people have told me for a long time, chris, charlie, you've been a democrat. you just didn't know it. >> well, i think they should. if they were reich me and sort of middle of the road and common sense republicans and they see what the leadership of the republican party is doing today, they ought to switch. they ought to become democrats. it's probably more true to their heart and their feeling if they're really more of a moderate-type republican. why won't they compromise? why won't they cooperate? why won't they do the kinds of things that the americans need and have done. this is the perfect example of it. >> i'm an optimist. i hope that that continues. >> well, come see me if you decide to run for governor. we ale have a nice platform right here. thank you so much. up next, the latest siting of milt romney in a place you'd never expect. never. th

buried about going or the fiscal cliff, nobody will be hiring in this environment. even though the fed is doing what they can, and will not translate into more jobs until the fiscal uncertainty gets removed. liz: ben bernanke said they will not tie any future fed rate moves to a point on the unemployment chart, that is 6.5%. we are well above 7%, so it will take a while, around midway 2015. they have never done that. >> they have been providing to say the rates will probably stay low. i have tried to be even more clear we will not be raising interest rates as one of the employment rate is above si abo. liz: what happens it is 6.5% and in part due to less than exciting participation in the labor force? >> ben bernanke address that in his report. none of these numeric thresholds are an absolute trigger. he said if we get below 6.5% but inflation is still low, they may think raising rates could still be inappropriate for he was very clear the fed still have a lot of wiggle room but at least you don't have to worry about raising interest rates until we get those markers. liz: what was your

to listen yet, so we've just got to wait. that's obviously not a great environment to move things along. the optimists on both sides think we're going to get a deal, not by christmas, but by new year's. if you ask people, what's the next step? what gets things moving? it's still complicated, and nobody has a consensus on that. the biggest challenge is how you strike a deal this year that has some things left undone for next year. and there's all sorts of people thinking about different kinds of triggers, different kind of things that say, well, if congress doesn't do x, then y kicks in, but there's no agreement on what those need to be. there's going to be more revenue, but things like entitlement reform, tax reform, those things are still very unsettled. >> so senator tom coburn yesterday on "morning joe" became the latest to break rank, saying he could support president obama's tax proposal. coburn joins a growing chorus of republicans from outside the house of representatives, urging house leadership to clear the way for a broad deal that would include tax increases on the wealthy. h

american corporations have done a terrific job of coping with a tough regulatory environment, a tough financial. the aftermath of this financial crisis. a lot of negative publicity. and made a lot of money. >> we want to rise above. do we not have a debt ceiling right after that? >> the debt ceiling. the interesting question whether they're going to roll -- >> here's what i think. we haven't talked about this. so i say president obama allows us to go over the cliff temporarily so that all the rates go up. then the democrats introduce a bill to lower it for 9 %, do some other stiff -- 98%, do some other stuff they want to do. then the republicans say fine but we've got to hold the debt ceiling, that's the next bargaining chip. i don't think we can use rides above for the debt ceiling because we don't want to rise above the debt ceiling. we have to come one new buttons -- >> pins, the whole thing. yeah. that is a dilemma. what a polemic -- >> constantino is cutting me off. you're going to hold that against me? all right. >> you can hear the voice in my head. >> yeah. he's mad because i
